This weekend the 12h Nürburgring and Red Bull Formula Nürburgring will take place at our legendary racetrack. These are your frequently asked questions and answers about the upcoming racing festival!
To the point: Where will which programme take place on the day?
Most of the Red Bull Formula (Saturday, 9 September) will take place exclusively in the Müllenbachschleife of our Grand Prix circuit. One of the many programme items is the show run of the F1 cars. They will drive on the Nordschleife and the entire Grand Prix circuit. Afterwards, the race of the Nürburgring Endurance Series will start - also on the entire circuit.
Is there an exact timetable? When do the F1 cars race on the Nordschleife?
No, but the showruns will take place between 10:00 - 14:00 h. You can find the exact information here.
Is there a site plan?
Yes, there is. You can find it on our website!
Will there be an autograph session with Vettel & Co?
No, there are no autograph sessions planned by the organisers at the moment.
How many laps will the Formula 1 cars do?
That varies, but there will be plenty of time and all laps can be followed via the video walls.
Are tickets still available?
Yes! The Red Bull Formula is sold out, as the capacity of 30,000 seats in the Müllenbachschleife has been exhausted. But the following tickets are still available:
1.) 12h Nürburgring (full payer: 25 Euro)
Admission to all grandstands around start-finish, GP paddock & spectator points Nordschleife
2.) 12h Nürburgring PLUS (full payer: 29 Euro)
Additional access to grandstands T5a or T10b with a view of part of the Müllenbachschleife
Will additional screens be set up to follow the action?
Yes, we will set up 8 additional TV screens in the Müllenbachschleife. In addition, there will be our permanent video wall at the BMW M Power grandstand (T3). The entire programme will run there as well.
Will the Red Bull Formula be broadcast live?
No, you can only experience the event live on site. But of course you will find numerous photos and videos on social media afterwards. As usual, the Nürburgring Endurance Series will be broadcast on our YouTube channel.
What is the 12h Nürburgring all about?
The 12h Nürburgring is a doubleheader of two endurance races of 6 hours each - one on Saturday, one on Sunday. More than 100 racing cars will be at the starting line - from the arrow-quick Porsche GT3 to the close-to-production BMW 325i. Your ticket gets you really close: the paddock, the starting grid before the race and all the grandstands are included. There will also be an expo area in the ring°boulevard.
Which cars will be at the start of the 12h Nürburgring? Is there anything else special?
The Nürburgring Endurance Series will publish the exact starting list. One special feature: on Saturday, the Nürburgring Endurance Series will race on the Nordschleife and the entire Grand Prix circuit (including the AMG Arena and Müllenbachschleife). So visitors to the Müllenbachschleife will also experience the racing action of the NLS.
Where can I camp?
At the Nordschleife, overnight camping is possible from Saturday to Sunday at the Brünnchen section. You will be charged per vehicle: 35 euros per night. There is no infrastructure (showers, toilet, electricity, fresh water, waste water disposal). We also recommend the permanent camping site "Camping am Nürburgring". This is located directly at the Müllenbachschleife and offers electricity as well as permanent sanitary buildings.
Which grandstands are open?
All of them. Both our frequently used grandstands around the start-finish (T3, T4, T4a), the grandstands of the Müllenbachschleife (T5a - T10b), as well as the T12a at the Advan-Bogen, the back straight of our GP circuit.
How long does it take me to walk from the Müllenbachschleife to the paddock and the start-finish?
It's about 1.5 kilometres on foot from the Goodyear bend to the start-finish straight. Depending on your speed, you will need around 15 to 20 minutes for the walk.
Can I also watch at the Nordschleife?
Yes, there are special spectator zones for ticket holders at the Brünnchen and Pflanzgarten sections. All other sections of the Nordschleife are free to watch. Walking and cycling around the circuit are possible as usual.
Where can I park at the Grand Prix circuit?
We have set up a parking guidance system around the Grand Prix circuit. Simply enter Nürburgring in your sat nav and you will be given all further instructions on site. Basically, we recommend arriving early on the day, as a high volume of traffic is expected.
Where can I park at the Nordschleife?
P96, P98, P100, Hatzenbachplateau.
